Homicide: Prince George, B.C.
Seven murders gave the city top spot in 2010, well above the national rate. Prince George, B.C., consistently has a high homicide rate: in 2009, its rate was 121 per cent above the national rate, exactly where it was in 2000. On the bright side, for whatever reason -- vigilant policing, circumstance, and maybe some luck -- at this time the city hasn't recorded a single murder in 2011.
